The essence- simply the best

Sonmi has a post with the same title and asks a very difficult question. The question/ request is

So, show me that which, in your opinion, (not that of others – in as much as not the most popular necessarily), is your pièce de résistance to date.

and yours truly has really thought about this request long and hard.

You see I write on many things. I post on religion, photography, books, music and movies and usually just anything that crosses my mind. Most of the posts take me between half an hour to 1 hour to write. I don’t have any draft files stored in notebooks or in a folder in this machine, I think on my feet half the time and the other half in my dreams.

I blog quite regularly. No am not lonely, but I like the group of friends that I have made on the blogworld. Many of them are wonderful people. I don’t make money from blogging but if you want to send offerings my way, just let me know :-P, I don’t think there would be anything wrong with making money off something I enjoy doing.

I would submit my confessions not as my best post but that post that aside from my about tells you about me. You see, I think therefore I am, as Rene did write eons ago. So this blog is about me. It details my travels, my likes and dislikes, my position on different issues, my reading list, my photos and so on. My confessions in a way mentions all these in passing and if the reader is lucky to get to it, they begin to see where I have come from, not necessarily where I am at.

And while answering the challenge I read Doob’s the art of blogging where I got a little inspiration for this post.

I read many blogs daily but some or most I hardly ever get to read the about page. There are a few I follow that once in a while I go back to check the about page just to see if there is anything I missed.

I love blogging and more so, I like the community of friends we meet a long the way.

Comic relief

My friends from the US of A gave themselves a president by the name of G. W Bush and we will be forever grateful for this gift. His off the cuff remarks not only leave a lot to be desired but will leave you with hurting ribs. I know you must have a long list of his memorable quotes, that notwithstanding, I am going to share just a few for comic relief.

as members of the press corps here know, I have at times complained about leaks of security information, whether the leaks be in the legislative branch or in the executive branch. And I take those leaks very seriously…. I’d like to know who leaked, and if anybody has got any information inside our government or outside our government who leaked, you ought to take it to the justice department so we can find out the leaker.

and we live in an amazing world. And yet, in the midst of our world, there’s a lot of folks who are dying and will die

there is no doubt in my mind that this country cannot achieve any objective we put our mind to

and the last for the day

these despicable [suicide attacks] were committed by killers whose only faith is hate. And the United States will find the killers, and they will learn the meaning of American justice
